Lumiappaday #114: Vimeo demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| March 8, 2012 | 1 Reply

Hey, check it out, it’s the official Vimeo app for your Nokia Lumia, demoed here on the 800. It works quite well, nice metro panoramic interface to pan through the menus.

This accepts logging in to your Vimeo account though I’ve forgotten my password and haven’t tried logging in to see additional features. I think you can upload (and do other things if you do). I just use Vimeo mostly to watch content – they’re generally of higher quality than YouTube stuff in terms of what the videos are actually about.

Play back is quite good though it does have the odd error of saying “cannot play on mobile device” when clearly it can. If you click again it will play the video. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s happening more than it should. I am not quite sure if that is my internet connection as that has been quite awful in the past couple of weeks (difficult to stream videos).

This app needs a home button to go back to the main page. Interestingly it can resume to your last position during video playback if you leave the app though it takes a few seconds to buffer back to that point. Resuming to the rest of the menu is quicker.
